The first things to consider when you are not receiving the kind of traffic you were hoping for is quite simple – What is on the market in my area? What has sold within the last 3 months within my area? How much traffic are properties in my area receiving?
So how do you obtain this information – Gauging how much traffic your neighborhood properties are getting is simple and easy. Get out in the community and ask the owners themselves. Go directly to your neighbor and ask. It’s that simple. If you are thinking to yourself… My house is superior to my neighbors, etc… That’s ok. What we want to find out concerns if the neighborhood is getting traffic. Remember, Real Estate is all about location. This will help determine how “in demand” your subdivision is at the moment.
Sold Data for the last 3 months – The county assessor will show you recorded sales based upon address and subdivision. You can research this online. If you have difficulty with this, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will email this info to you directly. Once you have this data, this is where you can compare your property and its features to those that have actually sold and at what price, price per sq ft, etc…
What is on the market in my area – To accomplish goal 1, you need to know which properties are on the market. You can use sites like Realtor.com to determine this or send us an email and request they we email you all of the active properties in your neighborhood directly from the MLS.
